Extracting features of tomato viral leaf diseases using image processing techniques

Sanjeela Sagar, Jaswinder Singh


Agriculture is the main livelihood of Indians. More than 50% of Indian population Is dependent on it and it contributes about 18% of Indian gross domestic product (GDP). According to Inc42, the agricultural sector of India is predicted to increase to US$ 24 billion by 2025. With the increase in population, the demand for food also increases, but more than 30% of crops get affected due to crop diseases. Overall, India lost approximately five million hectares of crop area to flash floods, cyclonic storms, floods, cloudbursts, and landslides till 2021. In that case, there is a need to prevent crops from diseases to fulfil demand supply ratio. This paper presents the feature extraction of tomato viral leaf diseases using various image processing techniques. Most of the research uses Convolutional Neural networks to extract the features of these diseases, but these neural networks are not performing much accurately in real scenarios, so there is a need to extract the features using image processing methods. During the study, it is found that these diseases have different colours, shapes and textures and these features can be used with convolution neural networks to bring more accurate results in real scenarios.
